My Favourite Sunglasses

I bought the most beautiful pair of sunglasses at Schipol Airport last year.  They were my first pair of really expensive, good UV sunglasses.

It took me ages choosing between a pair of Chanel and Gucci sunnies.  I chose the Gucci ones because they were the shape and size I wanted.  A lot of the other ones were too big and didn’t suit my face very well.  Luckily the shop assistant was very helpful and actually told the truth – the pair he said looked best were cheaper than the Chanel ones – so he wasn’t just trying to sell the most expensive ones.  Thank G for honest shop assistants!

I liked the Gucci ones because they have gold lines throughout them in a criss-cross look. They are more of a wayfarer look.


I’m so proud of these sunglasses (LOL).  I don’t take them to work though, because knowing my students they would probably see them sitting on my desk and would decide to try them on.   They’re the sort of sunnies I would wear if I know there is no chance of them getting broken.

I was really disappointed I didn’t get a bag at the Airport…I was looking for a good leather bag but decided I’d wait until I got to Abu Dhabi…got there and the same bag was about $200 more expensive…waited until I got to Sydney..they didn’t accept Euros.  I got back to Auckland and was so annoyed because I should have just got the one I saw in Schipol!

Who else has a favourite pair of sunnies?

  1. Love the glasses almost Grace Kelly in look. Shame about the bag but we have all done the same thing, waited instead of impulse buying.
